History[edit]

The airline was established in 2002 and started operations in October 2002 using a Boeing 737-800 on a two-year wet lease contract from Mandarin Airlines. Palau Trans Pacific passenger services between Palau and Taiwan were suspended in May 2003 due to concerns about SARS. Operations were suspended in March 2005. Midcorp, a Palau-based company controlled by local businessman and senator Alan Seid, then bought Palau Trans Pacific Airlines in October 2005, for the foreign air operator’s certificate it had retained [3]
